A core tenet of this program is to ensure that nurses and other front-line staff receive the required training on engaging and mobilizing patients safely by incorporating the functional capacity scores to achieve daily mobility goals. This is the exact eLearning we use as part of our onboarding and ongoing competency to drive a culture of activity and mobility.
This self-paced, approximately 1 hour, eLearning course aims to educate frontline staff on the consequences of immobility harm, how to utilize functional measurement tools, techniques for engaging patients and moving patients safely. This course can be loaded on your Learning Management System and accessed by an unlimited number of organization staff.
